I tried the same some time ago in user mode linux (tried to make X11

though there was absolutely no need to do that.  I wanted it simply
open and use the /dev/fb0 device ...

if I'm understanding correctly, this sounds very similar to what the colinux folks are trying to do with making and X11 run out of their virtual machine on Windows.

it may be worth speaking with them and try to build a common solution.



The result of the duopoly that currently defines "competition" is that
prices and service suck. We're the world's leader in Internet
technology - except that we're not.
